BOTOX Cosmetic is perennially one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in the world. It is practically a household name thanks to its effectiveness at treating frown lines, crow’s feet, brow furrows, and other stubborn wrinkles. At Crantford Costa Plastic Surgery, we offer BOTOX to Charleston, SC, men and women who want to turn back the clock and look like a younger version of themselves.

What Is BOTOX?

BOTOX is an injectable treatment that fades the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles using an active ingredient known as “botulinum toxin type a.” This specialized neurotoxin causes muscles to temporarily relax, preventing them from pulling on your skin when frowning, smiling, or squinting. When muscle contractions no longer pull, your skin lays smooth and flat, helping your features look softer and instantly more youthful, refreshed, and alert.

What Does BOTOX Treat?

BOTOX is a versatile treatment that can treat a variety of issues. It can address nearly any “dynamic” lines created by repeated facial movements that pull on the skin.

Common treatment areas include:

  • Crow’s feet in the corners of the eyes
  • Horizonal forehead lines
  • Vertical lines between the brows (“11s”)
  • Fine lines on the lips and around the mouth
  • Neck bands

In addition to these cosmetic uses, BOTOX has also been proven effective in treating migraine headaches and excessive sweating.

How Much Does BOTOX Cost?

BOTOX is priced by the unit, so your total treatment cost depends on how many units you’ll need to achieve your goals. At your consultation, you’ll discuss your desired treatment areas, and we will provide you with a price quote for your procedure. We caution our patients to be wary of practices that offer deep discounts on BOTOX. This could reflect a less experienced injector, an inferior product, or both.

Who Is a Good Candidate for BOTOX?

BOTOX is an excellent option for any patient who wants to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is a safe, cost-effective option for rejuvenating the face without surgery or other more invasive procedures.

There is no age minimum or maximum when it comes to BOTOX. Patients in their 20s, 30s, 40s, and beyond can all enjoy the benefits of this wrinkle-fighting treatment. Some patients also enhance their BOTOX results with dermal fillers to reduce nasolabial folds, add volume to the cheeks or lips, or smooth tear troughs.

What Happens During a BOTOX Treatment Session?

BOTOX treatments are quick and easy, fitting into even the busiest schedules. After cleansing your injection sites, your provider will administer a series of injections into targeted facial muscles. These injections feel like a pinprick or a series of tiny pinches. Most treatment sessions last 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the number of areas you are treating.

Is Recovery Time Required After BOTOX?

As a minimally invasive nonsurgical procedure, BOTOX requires little recovery time. You can return to work or home immediately after treatment, although you may experience some mild bruising or swelling around the treatment area. An ice pack or over-the-counter pain medication can help ease any discomfort.

When Will I See My BOTOX Results?

Your BOTOX results gradually develop over the course of 5 to 7 days. During this time, your muscles will slowly relax, and the overlying skin will smooth out. While a bit of patience is required, your final fresh-faced look will certainly be worth the wait.

How Long Does BOTOX Last?

BOTOX results typically last around 3 to 4 months. Many patients schedule touch-up treatments as part of their beauty routine. Studies have also shown that patients who have regularly scheduled injections may enjoy longer-lasting results over time.
